I have been reading a lot of Caroline Adderson’s books lately. And I will be reviewing a lot of them here on my Canadian blog.
I just love her kid’s books. She has such an amazing flare for capturing a story. And this story is no exception.
Every child can relate to a story that captures kids trying not to eat a certain food. And this is precisely what Leo goes through in this story.
On Sunday, Leo and his family father at Nonna’s house for a big, noisy, delizioso lunch.
Everyone is hungry for her homemade pasta, except Leo. But when Nonna passes around the bowls of soup with stelline — small star-shaped noodles–she also serves a story.
What a great way to get kids to eat! Tell them a story, distract them from what they are doing, and bingo! They will eat what is on their plates. No longer is he a picky kid. Instead, he is as hungry as everyone else when Nonna gives him her home prepared pasta dishes.
I loved this story from beginning to end!
